July 02, Aspen, Colo. / Cessna 210


At 0731 mountain time, a Cessna T210M was damaged when the gear collapsed on landing at Pitkin County Airport. The pilot and four passengers were not injured. The pilot said the landing gear would not retract after takeoff and he returned to the departure airport. He said he attempted to set the airplane down softly but the right main gear collapsed on touchdown, causing the airplane to spin around and bending the right horizontal stabilizer aft and up.
